Who's got hints? Tips? Recipes?
I don't even own a grinder yet, but I have a Kitchenaid and am thinking of getting the grinder attachment - but is that the way to go, or is there a better grinder out there for a similar price? The goal of this is to control the ingredients for the most part (I'm highly sensitive to nitrites/nitrates and other chemicals for example), but also, in the long run, to cut costs, so I don't want to go crazy with *acoutrements*. Where do I even find sausage casings?
I can't handle spiciness (cayenne and the like are out) but can handle "root spices" like garlic and horseradish, and would like both regular recipes like sweet italian sausage and odd recipes like apple chicken or the like...
Whattaya got, 'hounds?
